Update: Burning Man has reopened
Due to poor weather conditions – thunderstorms with heavy rain – there will be no entry onto The Playa until further notice.
Local news sources in Nevada say Burning Man will have to be closed for tonight and possibly into Tuesday morning in order to prevent accidents. Traffic into the site has been backed up for over three miles and local authorities are making Burners return to Reno.
Via Twitter, Burning Man has announced that those travelling to the festival should remain where they are and will be alerted when entry is reopened.
